We know that many of you has been waiting for this for weeks (months, years?). Meanwile, this is what we've been working at for so long and even promised to launch in late Spring (and later in July). Ok, for those who don't know what we're talking about -- it's Ultimate Guitar Profiles.

Now in public beta (it's hot in web 2.0 world to call everything "beta", so why not?) and ready to kick everybody's ass. Needless to say, it was the most challenging task we've ever done. Even though the amount of ideas implement is much more than was planned originally, we still have twice more things to implement in upcoming weeks and months.

But let's stop running ahead and look at what we've got today. UG Profiles is a huge step forward making a global community of guitarists and bands worldwide. [At least] we tried to beat similar services out there by targeting this one to guitarists. We hope it was about time to make something just for guitarists, eh? The main difference and the essence of UG Profiles is that everything here is destined for the musicians. Edit your own profile by adding photos of your instruments, describing guitar skils, adding pictures of yours and of course uploading your mp3s! Then, if you're a member of a band, be sure to make a special profile of it to spread the word about your music and find even more friends. And yes, that's just the beginning. We can tell you that things will evolve pretty soon in even better service :)

Ok, go ahead and check your profile now. Check if you're logged in and click the "My Profile" link at the top of the page (I'm sure you've already noticed it ;). Here it is -- your personal profile, where you can upload mp3s, pics, blogs, skills etc. Your public profile link will look like http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/zappp. Ok everything else is clear, I bet you know what to do next.

Enjoy your stay on Ultimate-Guitar [Profiles].

    hey is it just me, or is anyone else having log-in/log-out problems as well today? It keeps me logged in after I log out and it keeps telling me that my password is wrong.

    Click someone's username, then "add to friends". You can click My profile (top right)and see if anyone's sent you a friend request.

    I have to say, im impressed with the profiles. the UG team arent as lazy as i thought they were i have a feeling this is really gonna make UG a lot more popular. and well done to the programmers as well, youve coded it better than myspace and bebo etc from the look of things.

    This is awesome, thanks all of the UG team and staff for doing this. This is extremely bad ass for musicians and music lovers, and I think its going to take off great. Thanks again, take care!

    Nice, it's like myspace, but better. I love the MP3 players that you can upload music on to as well...peace out dmusic.com

    Thank god! Now we have a place to go and share music/skills without all the goddam spam and annoying pre-teens.

    This is EXCELLENT! I am officially hooked to Ultimate-Guitar now. Though, I wish the 'guitar skills' thing didn't require the uploading of an mp3. Who wants to waste time with a recording showing that they can downstroke?! Can't everyone downstroke?

    nice, a new way for people to advertise their bands! This is a pretty cool UG upgrade, they just need to make the news articles up to scratch and this would be a great website.

    Why not a little section for bands to advertise their own gigs etc as like news page stories maybe?

    This is great...with myspace and this and even other sites you can tell for sure that the future of music is in the digital realm...

    This is awesome! I just can't wait to see people addicted to it like myspace. Can you imagine someone spending countless hours on their profile adding friends and stuff

    haha, that was nice. I DO think myspace is absolute sh*t starting from layout, design and ending with features. But you can stay away from UGP anyway
